Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for a week in July 2017 - 2 families with 2 kids each. The four bedrooms were perfect for us and it worked out very well. The apartment is a generous size and it is in a perfect spot. Easy walk to the ferry and to the town center. We did pay extra for parking in the building as there is no free parking anywhere nearby and it was very convenient. There is a grocery store across the street that carries the basics, if you want a better selection another one is about a mile down the road. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby.

Only one of the bedrooms (the biggest one) has an A/C so the other rooms do get a little hot in the summer heat - but if you put the bedroom A/C and the two other A/Cs in the living room on and opened the doors before going to bed it was bearable. It has a small but functional kitchen space - we usually used it to make breakfast and sometimes a quick dinner. It did have some basics already there which was nice - salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar etc. The dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent was also provided.

We loved sitting on the balcony in the morning and in the evening, so serene.

The owner, Mary, is fantastic. Very responsive and helpful. She was waiting for us when we arrived and also had two mini bottles of local wine for us, very sweet and much needed after a long drive. She also provided us with some tips for restaurants and other stuff to do.

The best part, of course, is the lake itself - Lago di Garda is beautiful. We have actually travelled all around the lake and would highly recommend that as the north is quite different than the south. We also took the kids to Gardaland and Caneva water park, they loved both and it was an easy drive from Desenzano.

The internet was very good and reliable, worked reasonably well even when more than one device was connected.

Overall, it was an amazing vacation.

Lovely apartment, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment in August for 10 days 2 family's 4 adults 4 teenagers.

The location of the apartment is brilliant, easy walking distance to all that Desenzano offers including the ferry, buses shops restaurants Supermarket and town center.

The apartment is beautifully decorated with fantastic views of the Lake and was large enough to cater for all our needs, yes the kitchen area is small, but 8 of us managed and it has everything you would need in a holiday apartment, it can get quiet noisy from road traffic but you are in the center of town. We paid extra for parking at the apartment which is a must if you have a car.

Air Conditioning - we thought when we booked Air con was in all the rooms, it wasn't only in the lounge and main bedroom, which in August is not ideal and it did get very hot in the other bedrooms but Mary has stated she is looking to add this for next year which would definatlely be an advantage.

Mary is wonderful host and very responsive, she greeted us on arrival and is very knowledgeable about the area and has loads of useful information.

All in All we had and absolutely fantastic time and cant wait to visit Lake Garda again

Thank you Mary

Beautiful and in the center of town.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, beautiful views in the lovely town of Desenzano. Easy to discover the town on foot and the lake with the convenient marina and boat schedules. Highly recommend staying here. Mary is very helpful and a great host. We were her first Americans to stay so we felt very honored that she took time to guide us of to all Lake Garda has to offer. Thank you Mary!

Fantastic apartment, beautifully furnished, great

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large apartment with suited our family (2 adults and 3 kids) brilliantly. The host is fantastic - friendly, welcoming and flexible. We had a fantastic time here as you are only a few mi uses walk from the centre of Desenzano. The apartment is beautiful to live in, with lovely decor, furniture, colours, lampshades and other Italian glassware. There are two shower rooms and and wc. The bedrooms are also beautiful with lovely bed linen, lots of towels, nice shutters and lots of windows. The combination of all of the above led to a memorable, lovely stay for us. Thanks, Marida!

We had lovely stay in a well equipped apartment, at the centre of an ideal place to explore the lake

  • 5 of 5

2 couples and an adult singe occupied Blue Lake apartment. It was ideal for what we wanted. It has good spacious accommodation, it is well equipped, has a good view of the Lake, and is just a 5 minute walk into the town's centre. You will read from other reviews that it has a small kitchen area - but we needed nothing more than this. There is definitely a bit of plug juggling needed with the appliances but important one, the coffee machine was more often than not plugged in. It is not in the quietest location, but then you are in a town ( and we live in the country).

Everything was clean, tidy and very well presented - it was a delight to meet Mary on the first day.

The town is one of the largest on the Lake which therefore gives you plenty to do and see - whilst some of the other towns seemed to be more restricted. We particularly enjoyed the markets. There was one throughout the weekend, which was smaller and seemed to have a more select group of traders. On the Tuesday there was an enormous market that took over the whole town and had everything that you could imagine available.

The bistro immediately below the apartment is extremely good - don't disregard because it is so close!

I would happily recommend it to any group of 3 couples, or a large family.

Superb! First Class Accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment conveniently located within 3 minutes walk of the town centre and ferries. The accommodation has been professionally decorated to very high standards and is immaculately presented. The beds are comfortable with memory foam mattresses and very attractive bedding. The three double bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage and the single bedroom also has sufficient storage.The seating is cosy and more than adequate for five or six people. The dining table was beautifully laid out with pretty china and cutlery. We felt at home the moment we walked in. Lovely bathrooms with big showers and lots of hot water. The kitchen area is a little small but is adequate with everything provided. A note for British people - take a travel kettle if you want tea as Italian accommodation tends to provide coffee making machines only. We also made use of the washing machine - iron and clothes-airer are also provided.There is a nice balcony to sit out on with views of the lake. There is a lift in the building which was great as I took my elderly mother with me.

Marida, the owner is absolutely lovely and welcoming and went out of her way to help with any questions and queries and made us feel so welcome. I would return to this apartment anytime and hope to do so before too long. This is without doubt 5 star accommodation and a great place to stay.
